A spoon full of sugar #62 - Sketch by Caryn

Hi everyone, hope you're all having a good start to the week and not too much rain if you're here in the UK! I have a card today for A spoon full of sugar which is my guest design team card made to a gorgeous sketch by Caryn, thanks Caryn, I loved your sketch and will be using this one again. Thanks very much to Karen for asking me to be her guest designer for this week, it's a real honour and I very much enjoyed myself. I've used the gorgeous lion stamp from High Hopes and coloured him with markers, cut out with a nestie circle and then doodled and sponged around the edges. The background paper is Imaginisce and the brown embossed panel is Core'dinations card that I put through the Cuttlebug with branches folder and then sanded. I added the leaf ribbon, PM sentiment and more doodling and sponging with some card candy to finish off. The card was sent to a very special little boy who was 10 last week and I heard that he liked it so I'm very pleased.
